About us

In the spring of 2005, Chicago native, Rita Kontny, found herself eagerly looking forward to retirement, yet wondering what she was going to do with all of her newfound freedom.

In an effort to start her on yet another project, her son presented her with a pair of flip flops covered in hand tied yarn. Using her instinctive craft and art skills, she came upon a more efficient and secure way of decorating the flip flops. One pair and many compliments later,Your Flipflops was born!

Each pair of yourflipflops is hand crocheted by Rita herself. By staying abreast of current fashions and trends, Rita makes sure that her flip flops represent all of the season’s styles and colors. If you are looking for a color or pair in particular, feel free to contact Rita and she will be happy to put together a custom order for you!

Have fun exploring the site and checking out the store. New pairs are being added on a monthly basis all with new colors, styles and fun names.

Enjoy shopping!

P.S. You may have already noticed some new products on my website. I have a newly found passion and that is felting!! It is so fascinating to me and I hope you like what I have been making and adding to my site.
